OnStage make n' take

Hello Stampers!  I hope that you all have had a fabulous holiday weekend with your family and friends!  We had some friends over for a barbeque one evening, and then I met a good friend of mine about an hour away for an overnight stamping get together!  We had a blast and I will be showing you some of the fun projects that we made together!  

Since the new catalog is coming this week, I thought I would share with you one of the cards that we made at the April OnStage event using products from the new catalog!  Kind of a little sneak peek for you!

Daisy Delight card, Inkin Wit Dink We used the Daisy Delight stamp set for the daisy and the sentiment.  The designer series paper is from the Delightful Daisy designer series paper pack.  My favorite item is the center of the flower which is a new Faceted Gem!  They come in both clear and gold! Love them!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow and see the projects I made this weekend!

Team meeting make n' takes

Hello Stampers!  Every month I host a team meeting and one of the fun things that we do it some make n' take projects! There are typically four projects that we make.  Here are the projects that we made at the April meeting:

Succulant card, Inkin With DInk I love this card!  We used the Succulent Garden designer series paper for all three of our projects.  The flowers are punched from the Pansy punch and the Blossom builder punch.

explosion box, Inkin With Dink This is an explosion card!  These are always fun to make!  We took a 6" X 6" piece of cardstock and scored it at 2" and 4".  Then turn 90 degrees and again score at 2" & 4".

explosion box, Inkin With Dink This is what you see when you take the top off of the box.  

Oh So Succulent card, Inkin With Dink I love this card too!  Still the Succulent Garden designer series paper and the Pansy punch.  All of the greetings from the projects were from the All Things Thanks stamp set.  Luckily this stamp set will be carried over into the new catalog! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is what I did yesterday:

April Paper Pumpkin kit This is the April kit, and I think I have to say it is one of my favorites!  As I was doing the watercoloring, I wasn't so sure, but when I added it to the black card bases, they really popped!  Love them!

Avant Garden thank you

Hello Stampers!  My upline, Jeri, recently moved away to Wisconsin.  She doesn't have any local team members to stamp or swap with, so she had asked if she could swap with my team.  We said sure because the more cards the better right???  So every month Jeri mails me her swap cards, we swap them, and then I send them back to her.  Periodically she will send me a thank you card.  I love receiving these cards because she does beautiful work on her stamping!  Here is the latest card that she sent me:

IMG_8460-001 She used the Avant Garden stamp set which is one of my favorite from the Sale-a-bration brochure!  It is beautiful Jeri, thank you!
